Hey All,

For those who haven't heard of Sketchathon, it is an online drawing event that we started as a group last year and successfully hosted 25+ sessions. Sketchathon is a monitored and narrated online event where you as an artist are encouraged to take part in contests and warm-up drawing rounds to improve your drawing skills.

We have a clever timer keeping things on track, voice over man to make things interesting and occasional guests who love talking about art.

You could be from any walk of your drawing career, just getting started or already an established artist, and you'll take something away from this event.

So in order to make these events a success we have a few roles to fulfil.

The host You must have a powerful PC/ Laptop with faster internet connection to take up this role.

Event reporter Taking notes during the event and bringing the highlights to the members that might have missed it.

Organiser Sorting images into folders, keeping things tidy to ensure everyone involved has a great session

Vice President of Tutorials A guest speaker who will share a trick or a technique for less than 15 minutes.

Guest Everyone is welcome to take part but signing up before hand will let us know who you are.

Greetors The role of a Greetor is to introduce a new face to the event and help them take part in their first contest and answer any questions.

If you would like to take up any of the roles, note myself or e-mail (preferred)

The next event will take place on the Monday 8th September 2014 at 10am - Noon (London BST). There will be a timer counting down to this event as well with a link to the event. Yes, we are having just a two hour session as some of the previous session used to last all the way up to 10 hours and it was not healthy for the host and the team in charge.

See you there,
Gagan Singh

Hi Alexandr. Sorry for the late feedback but I was kinda busy recently. Ok let's start from the composition, which is the base when you analyze a picture. One of the biggest problem here it's that everything it's blended in one unique mash up of color, that make impossible to understand what it's going on in the frame.
Look at those reference how much they pay attention to separate plane and create a mice depth to field. The depth it's a really important to create a straight separation between shape but also for give a better clarity to the scene.…………

Another things that need to be more precise is the anatomy of the character and the pose that those assume in the frame. Remember you are trying to involve the audience in your picture, so you need to be precise and use any kind of technical skills you have to keep his attention high. I suggest to study more anatomy and use as much you can reference for your next work.
Here you can find some nice book where find what you need.…
This is really super well done…
really cool to understand how sketch fast and well…
Animal anatomy really well done with different animals and sheet for each one

For what concern color and rendering, they look too at a really base stage. Also here a strong study on those technical field will be super beneficial for your next work.…
a nice book from a really cool artist…
A must to have for a…
one from Scott Robertson…

That's all. I finish my bollocking.
For the rest, I had a quick look on you gallery and your work. I like the way you use the line art and how you capture flow, line-force with the stroke of the pen. I think it's a really interesting aspect you could make become one of your skill point.
Look on those book, maybe you'll find  out something useful to power up this your skill.

I hope I was useful somehow. Keep it up and go on with your study.

Send the group a note with the link, and we'll get you some critique- all admins can all see replies we make to an note sent to the group, so that way several of us don't end up sending you notes with the same information repeated over and over.

In the future, its best to use the submission ticket  to ask for crit since it's already private and has a thumbnail link to the picture, but I know a lot of people delete those before they decide to ask for crit.
